More neutral or sympathetic alternative to prostitute, whore. Frankly offering sex for money is seen as either a necessary or acceptable job, parallel to (say) factory work, and no stigma or sneer of contempt should be attached to its practitioners.

side effect of the bourgeois fantasies of some latter day feminists who greet prostitution and pornography with universal, and therefore unmerited, green lights.

sex work is real obviously, and we shouldn't demonize the people who do it. but too many of the fools who are trying to normalize or celebrate it are writing about fantasy, not socio-economic reality.
